A map of Estonia.

Estonia  is a democratic Baltic country in the crossroads of Central and Northern Europe, a part of the European Union and NATO. It borders Sweden to the west (marine border), Finland to the north (marine border), Russia to the east, and Latvia to the south. It was formerly a part of the USSR, and has been an independent country since 1991.


More than 76% of Estonians belong to no particular religious group. Therefore lack of religion is the dominant social force in Estonia. Of those who are Christians most are Lutheran Protestants while a few are Russian Orthodox or other types of Christians. Relatively few are openly atheists. Estonians just don’t want to be involved with religion. [1]
